Why is the 2.4G router not as fast as the original frequency band? Too slow!

Why is the 2.4G router not as fast as the original frequency band? Too slow!
Originally, my NBN plan was 45MB/S. The actual test can reach 45MB/S. The router model used is TP-LINK AC1200. I now choose the NBN 200MB/S plan. The new router I use is AX1800 Dual-Band Wi -Fi6 Router MR70X, which can reach 210MB/S in the 5G frequency band is very good. But the 2.4G frequency band is only 20MB/S. Why?

Hi @shaoquanli . On your wifi device, what connection speed does it get on the 5G band compared to the 2.4G band. That is, the speed between your wifi device and the router, not the 210M and 20M shown in the speed test.

Hi @shaoquanli,

 

Here is a thread about 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz that you may find helpful, 2.4 vs. 5 GHz Archer C1200.

Here are some related article on how to improve Wireless Connection.
